From the experts:

If Gus and Max have made it, why not Moe? Can it be the lingering Three Stooges effect? We think that Moe, like Joe, is one of the friendliest and most open of regular guy nickname names and should get a little more attention.

There have been some very visible on-screen Moes, such as Moe Green in "The Godfather" and Moe Szyskak on "The Simpsons," proprietor of Moe's Tavern.

The real life Moe (born Morris) Berg was a fascinating character, a Major League baseball player called 'the brainiest guy in baseball' who later served as a spy during World War II.
